preschool student with blocksAuthentic, experience-based, and engaging learning begins in preschool. Jeffco preschools build a foundation of academic, social-emotional, and physical learning so children are ready for school and a thriving future in Kindergarten and beyond.

Our programs are play-based and responsive to student needs so that children can be curious, joyful, and gain self-confidence while learning through inquiry and developing academic and social emotional skills.

The Jeffco Public Schools Preschool Program offers a wide variety of quality options 5 days a week for three and four-year-olds at multiple sites across the county. In all classrooms our students experience academic and social emotional core instruction and have access to services for English language learners,  and identified special education needs. Other program options include International Baccalaureate, Expeditionary Learning, and Dual Language which encompasses native language instruction.

Jeffco Public Schools Preschool Program offers half-day and full-day options for three and four-year-old children in many geographical areas of the district. Children turning three on or before October 1st are eligible to begin preschool. All programs are licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services and meet the Colorado Department of Education Quality Standards for Early Childhood Care and Education Services.
